Usain then confirmed the news in a video that has been widely shared on TikTok, where he sat next to his girlfriend as he announced: "I just did the reveal and I'm a girl dad." Kasi rubbed her bump, pointed at her partner and smiled as she chimed in, "Girl dad central!" Usain then jokingly threatened his daughter's future boyfriends, laughing as he said: "Any man! Any boy! Don't play with me!" The eight-time gold medallist and his 30-year-old girlfriend have been together for six years but didn't go public with their relationship until the 2016 Olympic Games.
